The City of New York is investing in the Brooklyn College Graduate School of Cinema, due to welcome its first students Fall 2014. It will make the announcement formally at this evening's Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce Winter Gala. Steiner Studios, the East Coast's largest soundstage and production facility, will house the school, making it the only grad school to be integrated with a working film lot. In addition to supporting the creation of this school, the Mayor's Office of Media & Entertainment will be involved in its development.

Commissioner Katherine Oliver states:

“This is a thriving sector of our economy, and our office has been committed to educating New Yorkers about the vast array of career opportunities available in the film, television and digital media fields. Helping to establish this unique educational program right here in Brooklyn will be a lasting testament to our local creative industry.”

Chairman of Steiner Studios Douglas C. Steiner adds:

“Students at the Brooklyn College Graduate School of Cinema will have the opposite of the ivory tower educational experience. They will instead be trained for this industry while surrounded by some of the most innovative artists, craftspeople and talent working right here on our lot.”

Upon opening the school, the Office will contribute to a scholarship fund that is expected to grant three full scholarships per year. The enrollment of the school will be up to four hundred, and tuition is intended to cost under half of what typical graduate film programs in the country cost.

The Graduate School of Cinema's programs will utilize industry professionals and foster fellowships, mentorships and residencies for its students. Master of Fine Arts degree programs will include cinema studies, cinematography, directing, production and post-production, screenwriting and visual effects. Student work will be showcased in a curated film festival, and graduates of the school will be able to pursue the Urban Fellows Program at Steiner Studios.

Among Brooklyn College's alumni are Joel Zwick, Michael Lynn and director Oren Moverman.
